“I think we have found our ‘Signature Event,” said last year’s party organizer, John Shannon. Sunday evening’s Valley Flavors held at the Campbell Community Center was a tremendous success. David Keller and his crew of committee “volunteers” organized fabulous food, delicious wine, musical entertainment, fun raffles and “Mystery boxes” all of which contributed to a first rate event. “Wow, you’ve got some heavy hitters here,” said Campbell Resident Keith Balch, noting that Mayor Jason Baker, Councilman Rich Waterman and Editor/ Publisher Sally Howe were all in attendance. Balch, himself, is a Board Member of the Campbell Heritage Theater. The Orchard City Banquet Hall was transformed from “stark” to “festive and inviting” by Kit Whitney and her group of decorating volunteers. Meera Chari also Party goers enjoy delicacies from The Mint Leaf. lent her professional expertise and considerable supplies to make the venue look first rate. Initial indications are that the event was also a successful fundraiser. Most of the proceeds of this year’s signature event will go toward many of Campbell Rotary’s Youth programs and scholarships. Mr. Keller will have a full report to the club at today’s meeting. Big thank yous go to committee members Kit Whitney, Mary Beth Seratt , Marv Bamburg, Meera Chari, Dave Crowley, Janine Payton, and John Shannon. And there would have been no event without our awesome 'restaurant recruiters': Sue Klear, Jason Baker, Janine Payton, Ravi Chari, and Bill Ellington. ! ! ! (See photos on page 2)
Rotary in Action
RotaCare Bay Area, Inc. is planning a Beneﬁt Dinner honoring Mr. John J. Fisher on November 10th 2011. The event will be held at the DoubleTree Hotel in San Jose. Twenty two years ago John Fisher was instrumental in the creation and establishment of RotaCare Bay Area, Inc.. It is because of John’s vision, determination and commitment that the organization now has 11 clinics covering all parts of the San Francisco Bay Area. The success of this event will be credited largely to our sponsors who will lend their names and ﬁnancial support to the event. The money raised will provide much needed support to the 11 free bay area medical clinics that John Fisher worked so hard to establish. By participating as a sponsor, your organization will beneﬁt from exposure through media campaigns and promotional efforts. Contact www.rotacarebayarea.org for sponsorship info or more details.

“THE FIRST ANNUAL VALLEY FLAVORS EVENT WAS A SUCCESS!!!!”
Did you attend Valley Flavors? I think most everyone did. There are a few people I want to thank for the successful event: Thank you to all of the organizers: David, Kit, Janine, Meera (shouldn't we have her become a member of our club?), Marv, John, Mary Beth, Ravi, Dave. It is likely that I have forgotten someone(s) on the list, and for that I apologize. I would also like to thank the spouses, signiﬁcant others and family members of these people who have had to be in the forced labor camps (my title for helping out my parents in their coffee shop when I was a kid!) before, during, and after the event. I would like to thank those members of the club who sold tickets to the event; those members who came to the event with all of their delightful guests; our terriﬁc musician who gladly strummed throughout the event. David's soccer team, Janine's kids and friends for their hard work. I really like the idea of having teen helpers. I would like to thank all of the people who donated gifts to our drawings/rafﬂes. The bags and boxes were amazing. The winnings inside were great. I just didn't win any of the big prizes. The slide show was great, I look forward to seeing it over and over and having it bigger and bigger as we have more events, gatherings, and fun in the future. I would like to thank the guests that joined us. I would especially like to thank the restaurants that prepared and donated their faire, and the wineries who donated their wines for our tastings. I can tell you which foods I really liked and which winery (well let me be honest, wineries) I enjoyed the most, but I didn't get to every table. I have to start my rounds earlier next year! The room was perfect, the tables were perfect, the decorations were perfect, the paperwork was perfect, the gifts were amazing. We had dignitaries from Campbell City Council and City Planners, Campbell Mayor Jason with his family, San Jose City Councilman Pete Constant, District 1, Sally Howe, Kiwanians, Rotarians from other clubs. Sally was one of our ﬁrst winners. Please thank them all for coming when you see them. Adam passed out at least 6 applications for membership; Ravi and Rick are already looking forward to being mentors/sponsors for prospective members. Oh yes, these were people from the wineries, you little devils!! I like a membership chair who is always prepared with brochures, applications and the like with him at all times. I had so many people come up to me letting me know that the event was a huge success and that they were having a terriﬁc time. I can only imagine how many compliments everyone else got. These were club members, guests of Rotarians, dignitaries. I think that means from all accounts: THE FIRST ANNUAL VALLEY FLAVORS EVENT WAS A SUCCESS!!!! I am sorry that I didn't get to chat with or say hello to everyone. Some of my chats were were much shorter than I would have liked. I did get some great pictures though. All in all, we had a wonderful event and I thank everyone for making it so successful. Please save all newspaper articles, emails, regarding the event so we can put them into our notebook for future planning. I think this would be helpful for bringing new restaurants, donators, etc.
